PEPPERELL — After years of turmoil, Tree House Craft Cannabis is ready to serve customers in town.
The company opened a new location for business at 8 a.m. on Thursday, March 16, at 112 Main Street, the company announced in a press release. This is the second retail location for the cannabis company, which currently operates a dispensary in Dracut.
THCC Co-Founder Wes Ritchie shared his excitement about the event.
“As an independent, ‘little guy’ marijuana company that specializes in carrying craft products, we’re excited to be expanding what we do into the Pepperell and greater Lowell community,” he said. “When customers and visitors walk into Tree House, our goal is to make them feel comfortable and welcome to ask questions.”
“We want to be informative, not intimidating, when it comes to marijuana. Folks can tell that our dispensaries are very different because of the selection, the atmosphere and the one-on-one customer experience,” he said.
The company had faced a series of hurdles prior to the new location’s opening. Ultimately, “major community support” resulted in the dispensary’s licensure, according to the press release.
“This is the culmination of three years of tireless regulatory work, collaborating with the town, completing construction, and now we are ready to go,” said THCC Co-Founder Ture Turnbull. “We are bringing jobs, economic activity, and the best craft cannabis products from across the state to the Town of Pepperell and to our customers from everywhere.”
“Over the next few weeks, you’re going to be able to get a huge variety of products at our store that you can’t find elsewhere, and everything else at the best prices around,” he said.
More than 50% of the initial team at the new THCC location resides in Pepperell, according to the press release. The location will be open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-through-Saturday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.
The company, which specializes in “craft” products, is also “designed” to serve as a “gathering place for local performers, artists and members of the community,” according to the press release.
